Last week I had the pleasure of attending a special webinar with Latina Mom Bloggers and Pull-Ups to listen to potty training advice from experts Dr. Andres Cotton and Jeannette Kaplun. This is very timely advice for me because my youngest is showing definite interest in using the potty – he’s even gone on it a few times himself! Needless to say, I was delighted to have the opportunity to listen to advice from professionals, and I was even given an opportunity to ask questions myself! As a result, I have some information to share with you – both about the experts, and their expert advice.
Dr. Cotton is a pediatrician in Miami who works both at Miami Children’s Hospital and has his own practice. He has 17 years of experience as a pediatrician, including some volunteer work with a Haiti Medical Relief Team. He has done a lot of great work and has worked with many parents, so he definitely has a wealth of knowledge to impart! It was really neat to hear him during the webinar because he was more comfortable speaking in Spanish and I don’t hear a lot of that anymore!
Jeannette Kaplun is a really awesome woman – condensing her bio into a single paragraph will take a bit of effort on my part! Beginning in the early 2000’s, she blogged about her pregnancy and motherhood. She’s been in the media on TV, radio, online and is also a published author and conference speaker! And on top of all that, she’s potty trained her own two children. She really was awesome to listen to through the webinar!
Dr. Cotton and Jeannette both had great advice during the webinar. The bloggers in this campaign sent in questions for them, which was fun. We definitely had an opportunity to learn, and it was also a very fun and casual webinar with lots of laughter. The questions were interesting – I don’t know how some of the other bloggers came up with such awesome questions! After the webinar, I felt that there were five top tips that they shared that I will also be using during my latest potty training adventure with my youngest son.

I think the most important thing to remember is that potty training is a process – it’s not going to happen all at once, it may not happen in the way you thought you knew was going to work, but it will happen.
